European Conventions

 

I’ve just arrived back in Edinburgh this week after a couple of conventions in Europe and a quick holiday in Switzerland.

I started off a couple of weeks back at the Evian Tattoo Show in France, working alongside old buddies from Octopus Tattoo in Derby, thanks Gerry and Ben for sharing the booth and keeping me entertained.

It was a busy convention and I didn’t stop all weekend, here’s some of what I got up to.

After a break in Switzerland to recover, and a visit to good friends in the Netherlands it was off to Brussels. This is the 2nd year I have done Brussels and once again in was a very busy show.

Helene was tattooed last year with a large piece on her back and came back for a miniature piece on her foot which was fun to do, I managed to get a picture of her back all healed after a year. Thanks again.

Long Distance and Long Sittings

Last week at Lew and Danny both travelled up from down south to get tattooed in Edinburgh.

Lew sat for a whole day to complete his abstract geometric sleeve.

Danny stuck it out for two and a half days for his lady Odin and mandala half sleeve and chest panel, which I was really happy with the result of.

It’s interesting to note that the larger more complex projects are coming from clients travelling from down south, and I reckon it’s time that the Scots step up!

Kalinga Kalinga Geo Bee Ganesh

I had some fun stuff in over the last couple of weeks – I’m really enjoying putting new twists on Filipino Kalinga tribal tattoo patterns. The chest piece is really very influenced by my pal Roxx at 2 Spirit in San Francisco so all due respects to her. I also got to finish up Martin’s Kalinga/Geo sleeve which was a very interesting project – surprisingly both of these pieces were these guys first tattoos – ‘Go big or go home’? Well done fellas!

Flying Visits

In the last few weeks I’ve been over to Stockholm to work at Infamous Tattoo Studio which is one of my favourite guest spots as well as my regular guest spot in London and I’ve been busy up in the ‘home base’ – Red Hot and Blue in Edinburgh.  I’ve had folks down from Orkney and further beyond so it’s been flying visits all round. Here’s some of the fruits of my labour.

Dots and Mandalas Amongst Others

So once again I’ve left it too long since the last update…… I’ve been pretty busy but that’s no excuse really. Here is some work from a few weeks back.

Also here are a couple of pieces that I managed to get healed shots of. It’s always good when you get the chance to get the tattoo once it’s settled in.

Henna Pufferfish Nest Whale

So here is some more work from the last few weeks – I’m almost back up to date.

First up I added to Jane’s mandal/henna arm next to some great pieces by Stef fro Old Town Tattoo in Edinburgh. Then there are various other pieces – amongst them a puffer fish nest – look the video up on the internet as it’s pretty cool – a Native American textile pattern whale, a Ganesh and amongst it a piece of Japanese inspired colour work from a few years back that I added a chest panel onto.

Into You London

 

INTOYOU1

 

I am very pleased to be able to announce that I shall be doing a monthly guest spot at Into You Tattoo in London beginning on 3rd July 2014. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to work at this prestigious studio – if it were not for Into You I probably wouldn’t have been inspired to get into tattooing in the first place.

For bookings please email Blue at the studio: blue@into-you.co.uk
